Registrar

Looking to register for classes? Need a transcript or replacement diploma? This section can help you with these needs!

Registration

There is a registration day provided for students immediately prior to the beginning of each semester. The specified days and times are listed in the Academic Calendar for new students and returning students.

Tuition and fees are payable by the end of the official registration day for the semester, regardless of start date of class(es). Once classes have begun, students may only register for classes that have not met.

Students may take up to 21 hours without special permission during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students must seek special permission from the Executive Vice-President to carry an overload of semester hours.

Current Students

Currently enrolled students have the opportunity to register for classes in the upcoming semester during a specific early registration period. Students are contacted through their JSCC email account with specific instructions regarding registration, their advisor’s name, and office location. Early registration for the Fall and Summer semesters occurs in April.  Spring semester early registration starts in late October. Check the Academic Calendar for specific registration periods.

Registration is done with your advisor, or through WebAdvisor. Either way students will need to meet with their advisor to remove the advising hold and to verify that courses chosen are required in your program. Students will receive a confirmation email once they have registered online.  The email will contain important payment, refund and attendance information.

New Students

New students must be accepted to JSCC before they are eligible to register.  Make sure you have completed the necessary requirements for admission.  Students are asked to attend a New Student Orientation session. During the orientation, students will receive important information to be successful at JSCC, meet with an academic advisor, establish the correct courses for their program, and have the opportunity to register early.

Returning Students

Returning students may register for courses during the established registration period.  Check the Academic Calendar for specific registration periods.

If you have not been a JSCC curriculum student for more than one year, you will need to complete a new online application.  Please review the Admissions process to make sure you have completed the necessary requirements for admissions.

To Take a Class as a Special Student or Audit

 

Special Students

Students who are at least 18 years of age, have graduated high school or obtained a GED, but do not wish to enter a degree or diploma program may enroll at JSCC as a “special credit” student. This is also an option for students needing to take a class to transfer back to another college. Please review the Admissions process to make sure you have completed the necessary requirements for admissions. Students may accumulate twelve (12) credit hours before being required to choose a major. Special Credit students must meet all course pre-requisites. If classes are taken at another college, an official transcript is required to award credit.  Financial Aid is NOT available for Special Credit students.

Audit Students

Students who wish to audit courses must indicate to the advisor which course(s) they are auditing. Students who audit classes do not receive credit for courses taken, and class discussion, tests, and exams are optional at the discretion of the instructor. Students are expected to attend class regularly, and a notation of the audited class will be made on the student’s permanent record represented by “AU”. Students should be aware that Financial Aid and Veteran benefits do not pay for audit courses. Audit courses do not transfer.

Graduation Registration

Commencement Ceremony

One commencement ceremony is held each academic year, in May, for our August, December, and May graduates. Please check the Academic Calendar for exact dates and times. Ceremonies are currently held at the Duplin County Events Center (tickets are not required).   A graduation application must be on file with the Registrar’s office, and payment processed, to be able to walk at commencement.

Attending students will receive their diplomas at commencement, except for Early College students. If you are graduating from a two-year program, the borrowed hood will need to be turned in to receive the diploma

Deadlines & Intent to Graduate

Graduation applications will need to be completed and paid for no later than February 15th. If you do not complete your program, a refund will be applied to your account or funds moved over to the next graduation. Correspondence will be made through your JSCC email.

Replacement Diploma Requests

To receive another diploma because the original has been misplaced or destroyed (or some other occurrence), complete the Replacement Diploma request and pay the fees. The new diploma will be sent to you within a month of completing the process.

How To:

Change Address

If a student is on campus they can come by Student Services, in the Strickland Building, and complete a change form. Student’s that are not on campus may send an email request from their JSCC student email to Wanda Edwards at wedwards@jamessprunt.edu.  The email needs to include the student’s ID#, their previous address, and what needs to be changed.

Dropping Classes

If you need to drop a class, this should be done before the end of Registration Day to avoid any charges for the course. Students that do not drop classes on Registration Day will be responsible for 25% of the cost of the course even if one never attends. Students, who have not attended class at least once by the 10% date, will be dropped by the instructor as “never attended.”

Withdrawal from Classes

Students who must withdraw from one or more classes during the semester have the responsibility of notifying each instructor, using their JSCC email, to complete a withdrawal form. Courses in which grades of “W” are received will not be counted as hours attempted and will not affect a student’s grade point average. Students receiving financial aid should verify with that office the impact withdrawing may have on their financial aid funds.

Notification of withdrawal from a course must be received within ten (10) working days of the last date of attendance or as specified by the instructor in the course syllabus or the course instructor will withdraw the student and a grade of “F” may be assigned for that course. Students may officially withdraw through the twelfth week of the semester (or 75% of the allotted time for any shorter session). Beyond the twelfth week (or after the 75% point), students may officially withdraw only when extenuating circumstances occur and such withdrawals must be approved by the appropriate Department Head.

Curriculum Refund Policy

A refund shall be given only under the following circumstances:

  1. A 100% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the first day of class(es) of the academic semester as noted in the college calendar. Also a student is eligible for a 100% refund if the class in which the student is officially registered fails to “make” due to insufficient enrollment. A 100% refund includes all tuition and fees paid.
  2. A 75% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class (es) prior to or on the official 10% point of the semester. A 75% refund includes tuition only. Fees are not included in the 75% refund.
  3. For classes beginning at times other than the first week (seven calendar days) of the semester, a 100% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to the first class meeting. A 75% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the 10% point of the class.
